Chapati And Chicken Satay For Dinner

As I sit here writing this post, the outside temperature is 32 deg. C. Sometimes the midday temperature could go as high as 35 deg. C. After having watered my plants in the garden, I will be staying indoor for the rest of the day. 

The following photos were taken end of December last year (about 2 months ago) when the weather was much cooler then. 
Early morning sky @ 7:15 am.
 I dropped in at the plant nursery for some fertilizer and saw these pitchers.
Hanging pitchers from the potted plant.
First time getting to see one up close.

That evening we had a late dinner at one of our regular coffee shop.
We ordered a piece of chapati each.
We also ordered 10 sticks of chicken satay from a roadside stall in front of the coffee shop.
Once in a while we enjoy a late night dinner of chapati, satay and chilled unsweetened black coffee.

Sharing some photos of items found at the National Museum. 
Foundation stone for pillar, discovered in the Bujang Valley, Kedah. These are believed to be used as foundation for wooden pillars in a Hindu-Buddhist temple between the 5th and 12th centuries AD.
A model of a Majapahit Bahtera ship. Majapahit was a famous imperial kingdom in the Malay world, based in modern Indonesia and founded in the late 13th century.

Linking to Happy Tuesday, Tuesday's Treasures & Image-in-ing.

Since we have a Kingdom nothing can destroy,
let us please God by serving Him with thankful hearts
and with holy fear and awe.
(Hebrews 12:28, The Living Bible-TLB)

  1. Coffee so late, can sleep? The purple tablecloth at the coffeeshop looks so nice. Wonderful discoveries at the museum, do you visit the museum very often?

    1. Hubby has no problem with coffee at late hours. No, I don't often visit the National museum, the photos were taken during one of our visits.

  2. I'm glad you can keep cool indoors. It's interesting to look at unusual plants closeup at the garden centre and visit the museum where you can see items on display and learn more about the ancient culture.

  3. Hola Nancy, preciosas fotos. Las plantas carnívoras me encantan y aquí se consiguen con facilidad, pero me resultan muy difíciles de cuidar. Buen día. Besos.

  7. Satay looks tasty. I believe it is illegal to pluck pitcher plants from jungles and forest to grow them at home. How do garden centers grow them? From seeds?
